For a long time I’ve been trying to be a student while trying to be an artist. I’ve been trying to fund my studying by selling my “homework”. It has made me uncomfortable recently to look at my art and realize that my portfolio isn’t cohesive and it doesn’t necessarily represent the artist I want to be. For a long time I’ve tried to not be me; I’ve tried to be so many other successful artists, hoping that what worked for them would work for me too. But the problem is that I am not them, and what works for them does not work for me.
Just recently do I feel like I have started to come into my own artistic-ness (?)… I’m starting to learn what color palettes I’m drawn to and what subjects I enjoy depicting. I feel like I have such a long way to go as a student. I’ve barely scraped the surface of what there is to know and learn about art. But I do feel like I can lose my training wheels and begin to ride on my own.
That being said, I am hoping to define Emma Will more distinctly to you. If I don’t know what it is as a brand, then you surely won’t either. My goal over this next season is to learn more about me and my goals as an artist and then present myself to you in a more definitive way. You, as a follower/customer/friend should be allowed that convenience.
In other news, Monday marks two years married to this guy…sometimes it feels like it’s only been two days and other times, twenty years. Regardless, it has been two years full of grace and mercy and I am so incredibly thankful.
Blessings to you this holiday season!
